Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"



this question might sound dumb, but I'm a beginner and I wanted to know how this all works at first. So here is my question:

Do I need to create an animation for each cinematic? If a character should do something special, not as jumping, shooting or so where you just can use the same animation over and over again. For example if I want to set up a sequence where a character interacts with a special object in a certain way.

I'm asking this, because it would take many many months to create all animations...

Thanks in advance

Hi Nightware -

You can reuse Animations as necessary to what you are trying to achieve. I know that most cinematics will have a lot of very custom animation sets to highlight a specific set of actions or events, but a jump, walk, run, or even a basic interact animation can be reused.

Thank You
